Gene Haas: 'I’m pleased to see the car return to the more familiar Haas Automation colours'

Haas Automation founder and chairman of the Haas F1 team Gene Haas says that he is pleased to see the company colours return on the VF-20 after being replaced with the black and gold of Rich Energy in 2019.

Both on and off the track in 2019, Haas had a difficult time of things. At the launch of their VF-19, a car which featured memorable black and gold paint work, things were looking up for the American team.

In Rich Energy the team had a strong title sponsor and, in Ferrari, they had a strong engine partner.

Things did not go to plan and, as quickly as expectations had been raised, hopes fell.

Haas finished second last in the standings, only Williams behind the team at the foot of the table, and Gene Haas knows that this cannot be allowed to happen again.

“I’m pleased to see the car return to the more familiar Haas Automation colors, it’s certainly a livery that people identify with,” said Haas. “Frankly, I’m hoping the VF-20 will return us to the kind of form we ran in 2018 when we finished fifth in the constructors’ championship. 2019 was a tough season to endure.

"We’ve been through a real education process, one that comes to all Formula One teams at some stage. I’m trusting we’ve learned from those lessons and have applied that knowledge into making the VF-20 a more competitive entry.

"It’s important to me that we’re back in the mix and consistently scoring points, we certainly have the capability and we’ve proved as an organization we can do it.”
